IPC#4 Sketch

Relax by Debbie features Floaty Goat, Seashells, Land Borders and Sea Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
I won my first Newton's Nook Designs stamp set way  back on October 18, 2013, and I've been a Newton junkie since then!  So to pick from the 99 different challenges, I was a bit overwhelmed.  Therefore, I decided to use the sketch (IPC#4) that started my NND adventure. For my card, I created a little river flowing between the seashore using the Land Border and Sea Borders die sets. To create the seashore, I used distress ink and matte texture paste with the Seashell stencil. I adhered the layers before cutting with the rounded-edge die from the Framework die set. I stamped and colored the goat from the Floaty Goat stamp set and added glossy accents to make the tube look inflated.  I used the 'relax' sentiment from the Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set.

Here's my 1st IPC entry using the above sketch!
I used Newton's Holiday Mischief, which was my very first NND stamp set that I had won from a NND blog hop!  Since that fateful day, my NND collection has grown a lot--not only are there amazingly cute stamp, but the stencils and dies are just amazing!  

Now it's your turn to make our 100th challenge extra fabulous!

Other Challenges I'm entering my card:


  1. Lovely inspiration Debbie! I see your first IPC entry and I think it's time for me to play as well. I just got a stamp set of NND from a destash and can't wait to play along.

  2. I'm loving both your cards!! I love that you chose the perfect patterned paper for each. You did a way better job at coloring Floaty Goat than I did. He turned out great! And I love the two different ways you interpreted the sketch.

    Thanks for sharing your cards with us for our Cut it Up for our Welcome Summer challenge!


  3. This is gorgeous! I love that you re-did your first entry! I remember that one too! Both cards are fantastic! I love the sparkle on the first one and I love the layering with the dies on the second! So cool to see them both!
